Youths in Ondo state, under the umbrella body of Ondo Youth Coalition have described the outgoing government of Dr. Olusegun Mimiko as the most innovative and successful so far in the history of governance in the state.
The Coalition observed that the Governor was able to separate governance from politics, hence the ability to impact so much on the people adding that the state has never experienced the level of global attention the numerous globally rated achievements of the government brought on the state.
According the Coalition in a statement issued yesterday in Akure and signed by the President, Secretary and Public Relations Officer , Adekanmbi Oluwatuyi, Michael Oluwole and Obanoyen Abiola respectively, it offered that beyond any other government before it, the Mimiko led government has impacted much on the lives of residents in the state with its lofty ideas and record creating innovations which have in no small measure raised the bar of governance in the state.
“The commendable reduction in In a statement issued in Akure on Friday and signed by the President, Secretary and Public Relations Officer , Adekanmbi Oluwatuyi, Michael Oluwole and Obanoyen Abiola respectively, the youths offered that beyond any other government before it, the Mimiko led government has impacted much on the lives of residents in the state with its lofty ideas and record creating innovations which have in no small measure raised the bar of governance in the state.
” The record creating Mother and Child hospitals, the urban renewal success which earned the Governor a United Nations Scroll of honour, Cocoa revolution and the government’s job creation activities as powered by its Wealth Creation agency as well as its economic diversification programmes have arrested global attention, the statement read.
“Before now, no programme of note had warranted other states in the country to visit Ondo with the sole aim to understudy, but there are countless number of such visits under the Mimiko led government with the latest being Kogi state.”
Re- echoing the call by the former Governor of old Kaduna State Alhaji Balarabe Musa that Governor Mimiko should lead the progressives because of his people oriented progrrammes as governor, the youths posited that whoever that will succeed Mimiko as governor must not be an alien to the programmes of the government, concluding that it is the only way the good works of the outgoing government could be sustained.
Recall that the vice president of the Agape Christian Ministries, Pastor Funke Felix Adejumo while speaking last Sunday at the 28th International Convention of the church in Akure had submitted that “no Governor in Ondo state has impacted on the lives of the masses like the Mimiko led administration has done in the last 7 years”.
